THE MEADOW WILL BE CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS FROM 20 MAY TO 9 JUNE. REOPENS FOR THE JUNE LONG WEEKEND SO BOOK IN NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

Just 15 minutes off the Pacific Highway NSW at Taree, The Meadow is a hidden gem located at the rear of our 100 acre property in the heart of the beautiful Manning Valley. If you love nature and lots of space then this is the perfect place for you. The Meadow is about as far from a commercial caravan park as you can get! There are a dozen rustic firepits, scattered across 5 mowed acres of grass, surrounded by horse paddocks and a creek. Your booking includes a free bag of firewood on arrival and additional bags can be purchased on site for just $10. 

Bo Bo Creek runs beside the entire campsite and provides beautiful shade where you can escape from the heat and cool off in the crystal clear water. As it is dependent on rainfall there are no fish but plenty of yabbies to catch and release. We also have a large dam with a kayak which is perfect for swimming, SUP, inflatables or RC boats. Kids will love our Koala Walk with information about native wildlife and our trails are safe for bike riding. Little ones will love our Enchanted Fairy Forest and playground. Take a stroll around the farm or just kick back and relax with a cold drink at The Sunset Spot where you can view stunning sunsets over the rolling hills. Our farm is full of horses, cows, calves and wildlife including our very special resident koalas. There is so much to see and do, you wont be disappointed.

This is a picturesque rural property where we encourage guests to embrace the natural surroundings and step away from the stresses of every day life. Loud music, group parties, dirt bikes, drones and unruly behavior are not welcome here. Bluebell Hill is our home and we live here all year round so we ask all visitors to respect our property.

The price listed is for 2 adults to set up at a firepit and each site can be booked for up to 10 people. If you are with friends or a group of people, it is cheaper to book together at one site. Additional adults and children in your group are priced separately and children 0-2 are FREE. Well behaved, sociable, non-barking dogs on leads are permitted by request, just message Karen with details of your furry friend for approval.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE MEADOW IS OFF-GRID WITH NO AMENITIES. YOU MUST SELF-CONTAINED IE BYO TOILET, SHOWER, DRINKING WATER.

The set up is amazing, from the 1.5km walk to see koalas, the dam, the memory tree, to the fairy garden & just the sites with the fire pits all set up! It was fantastic!

The property was amazing, the kids had a ball exploring the fairy garden and creeks. Seeing Bella, the Koala, was a definite highlight. Already planning our return trip.
